The above picture is one of many inspirations for the birdcage veil that I am making. I am still tweaking exactly how I want it to be but so far this is my favorite. I plan to make the rosettes from the fabric for the halter on my dress once altered.
The search for the perfect flowers that work in our budget was difficult and daunting. Sure who doesn't want real flowers and those gorgeous bouquets. But once I found the fabric pom poms this was going to be the end to my search. They were unique and they weren't going to break the bank. They are a tedious task but the end result will be something that will stand out and not be the same ol' element from weddings past. As well as a huge cost savings from the $350-400 asked by florists. That much money for 5 bouquets and 5 boutonnieres is ridiculous.
We are well into our wedding planning...well my planning. I'm obsessed with wedding blogs and websites. I find ideas everywhere. The above is one of the latest ideas that will be added to our wedding. I think it is going to be perfect for the cake, pie and cupcakes that will cover the dessert table. and yes I will be doing the cupcakes and probably the cake myself. I'm not crazy. I just like having my hand in all aspects.
